It’s Been a Little While

Like, almost a year, actually.

I’ve been more focused on Double Jump, the gaming blog I run with Rachel, for the past year. It’s be great, considering how much we both enjoy writing, gaming, and working together. We’ve been meeting awesome fellow bloggers in the gaming community, too.

This particular little blog has always been in the back of my mind. It was my first experience here on WordPress, after all, and it’s been a great help with writing, habits and multitasking, and another way to socialize. However, between my day job, Double Jump, and other hobbies that I’m trying to develop into skills, this daily blog was the one to hit the back burner first.

I want to come back to it, though. It’ll probably be more slice-of-life than just focusing on writing and reading, although I’m sure those will still be heavy topics on this blog, and definitely not everyday. Perhaps a post will appear a couple of times a day, maybe even going back to the weekend prompts and scribbles as well.

In the meantime, I hope everyone has been well!

Feeling Lost

I’m actually typing this from my mother’s laptop since my beloved laptop is dying. In lieu of flowers, please donateĀ novels, notebooks, and stationary supplies.

Lame jokes aside, my laptop has begun showing the dreaded “blue screen of death.” The laptop had a good run, being in the family about five or six years. With all the technology leaps and bounds we’re making with computers and such nowadays, the laptop did pretty well. The laptop had actually been my older sister’s laptop, but once she got a new, smaller one that fit her computing lifestyle, I took it over. My first laptop still worked, but it was even older and needed a new battery. With its age, I figured might as well keep it as an emergency back-up and move on by taking over my sister’s laptop.

I was seriously thinking of getting a new laptop soon anyway, but I was hesitating because my laptop was still in fine condition. Then the BSoD appeared more than once a couple of days ago and made my decision for me. Fortunately, the majority of my important documents and pictures are safe on my flash drive.

With that said, it’s so weird not to be writing regularly on my laptop. I had a good habit forming, working on my Camp NaNo project (which I’m now about 3 days behind), drafting up some blog posts, just writing every day. Now I feel lost without touching the keyboard for a day or two. I’ve been reading (got 2 out of the 3 books on my April list read!) and writing in notebooks (which is always fun and refreshing), but it’s still odd.

I’ve been glancing at different types of laptops, mostly from Dell because that’s where my family’s always gotten their computers, and I’m trying to decide if I should invest in a laptop that has more power for gaming as well as my usual go-to programs like Office. The Sims games are a guilty pleasure and I would love to try out games like Star Trek Online, Minecraft, and DC Heroes on my laptop. I’m more of a casual gamer when it comes to the PC, but if time ever allowed it, I would love to play more!

Any suggestions? šŸ™‚
